Trailer for God's Own Country, which screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival.

Tasked with keeping his family's Yorkshire farm operational, Johnny's days are filled with sheep, struggle and barked cruelties from his ailing father. His nights bring boozing at the local pub and anonymous sex with whoever's willing, until Gheorghe, a Romanian worker hired to help during the lambing season, arrives. After a tense start, sparks soon fly on the hillside, as does the promise of a different future.

God's Own Country may burst with the quiet yearning of all great forbidden romances, but the visually sparse, emotionally rich film remains unafraid of carving its own path – particularly when it comes to its heated sex scenes and documentary-like depiction of rural life. Making his feature debut, writer/director Francis Lee tells a fictional tale that draws upon the landscape he grew up with, subverts the familiar path taken by queer love stories, and contemplates British country life and the influence of immigration.
